RANCHI: Counting of votes for Medininagar, Hazaribagh, Giridih, Ranchi, Adityapur Nagar Nigam is underway and the results of the Nagar Nigam elections 2018 held in Jharkhand will be out by afternoon. Polling for the five Medininagar, Hazaribagh, Giridih, Ranchi, Adityapur Nagar Nigam was held on April 16 (Monday) under the watchful eyes of the State Election Commission.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress, the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and others have fielded candidates for the posts of Mayor and Deputy Mayor here. Ahead of the counting of votes, all the three main political parties have expressed confidence that their respective candidates will win.

The BJP named Asha Lakra as its candidate for the mayor of Ranchi but she is trailing against JMM's Varsha Gari. In Hazaribagh, the main contest is between the BJP and Congress. The BJP has fielded Roshni Tirkey and Rajkumar Lal for the post of president and vice president respectively.

In Girdih, there is a triangular contest between BJP, JMM and Congress for the mayoral post, meanwhile, for the deputy mayor's post, the BJP is locked in a fierce battle with Congress here. From Giridih, Sunil Paswan and Prakash Seth have been named as BJP candidates.

In Medininagar, the reputation of three main parties – BJP, Congress and JMM - is at stake for the mayoral and deputy mayor's post. Poonam Singh, who had contested as an Independent candidate, is also capable of changing the entire poll arithmetic and is being considered a strong contender for the mayor's post.

For Adityapur mayor, the BJP has named Vinod Srivastava while Amit Singh has been selected as the deputy mayor candidate. BJP appears to be a clear winner here but it would be wrong to underestimate Congress and RJD here. The two parties have thrown their weight behind their mayoral and deputy mayoral candidates here.
